Second Annual Summer Essentials Sew-Along

This summer I’m sewing along with Ali at The Wardrobe, Reimagined; Alessa at Farbenfreude; Sarah at Rhinestones and Telephones; and a bunch of other talented seamsters. We’re all making summer essentials, and this post marks the beginning of the saga.

I’m clearly in Sew-Along withdrawal as I’ve just now committed myself to a summer-long Sew-Along – the Second Annual Summer Essentials Sew-Along. I’ll be sharing my summer sewing projects with Ali at The Wardrobe, Reimagined; Alessa at Farbenfreude; Sarah at Rhinestones and Telephones; and a bunch of other talented seamsters.

The three hosts laid out seven categories of summer wear:

  • Poolside Pretties
  • Clam Diggers & Co.
  • Sweet and Sassy Skirts
  • The Sundress
  • Tees, Tunics, and Blouses
  • Those Summery Nights
  • Accessorize Me!

Though I joined late, the flexibility of this Sew-Along allows me to count the three summery items I’ve already made:  the sun hat for my mom, the black-and-white satin organza Crescent skirt, and yesterday’s refashioned Sorbetto blouse.  And, I imagine a few more summery items will be easy to come by.  As you’ve already heard me say, I plan to make a maxi dress this summer, and I still have the fabric for those spring pants sitting around waiting to be cut.  Hopefully this Sew-Along will give me the inspiration I need to complete those projects.

I do plan to keep fall sewing in mind, but it’s so much more fun to sew with a community than to follow my own arbitrary guidelines.  Hopefully I can accomplish both over the next few months.  Wish me luck!  Or, better yet, join me?
